Now ordered by the Dutch and Belgian Navies to add to Finland, Sweden and the UK, as reported by Overt Defense (which also includes a data table).

The 40mm Bofors L/70 has been around for over 70 years, and until recently appeared to be fading out of use, but a new lightweight mounting (plus I suspect the change in ownership) has transformed its sales. Similar developments previously boosted the 57mm Bofors as well.
